You just can't have roosters or more than 15 chickens. http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/salt-lake-city-utah-chicken-ordinanceDid you have to get a permit? I have been wanting to have chickens in my back yard for years.
Nice to know, I live in Milcreek/Murray so they are very picky, if I could get away with it I would also have some goats, to help with mowing the lawn and just because they are adorable.You just can't have roosters or more than 15 chickens. http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/salt-lake-city-utah-chicken-ordinance
That is cute. My friend's Mom has some and she feeds them all of her leftover fruit and veggies.He sometimes herds them, but the yard is fenced in and none of them have ever flown out. One hen went missing and we had no idea where she was, but it turned out she was sitting on eggs under the coop.
Maybe you'll get lucky and have a few chicks, only problem is if your roosters crow, neighbors get mad.Ugh, it turns out that BOTH of my olive eggers are roosters! I got them from Chase Hatchery, and they said they were pullets. I have gotten 4 chickens from there, and not once have I gotten what I wanted. Last spring, I got what I thought were two Jersey Giant hens, but they ended up being Australorp hens.
That's good roosters can have fun personalities, I had a rooster when growing up after I snuck some chicks home but unfortunately one of the neighborhood cats got a hold of him, he used to perch on wrist.They crow, but thankfully they don't do it super early on the morning.
